Today’s Stakes Pageantry: Belmont 6, 8, 10, Los Alamitos Thoroughbreds 6 on the free page. Pay-side has Arlington 8, 9, Delpark 8, 9, 10, 11, Ellis Park 8.

Singling-out #1 Dona Bruja in Arlington 6. Likewise #6 Little Blaker in BelTerra 7. Ditto #2 Afterburner in Woodbine 8. Same goes for #6 Pacific Pink in Evangeline 4.

After four consecutive singles, the bases are loaded, so it’s time to go for the salami in Evangeline 7, in which we bypass the morning-line fave and go instead with #3 Underpressure, #6 Magic Vow, #7 True Emperor, #9 Bending Saint, #5 Tammany Parkway. Hoo-boy. Race 8 there, it’s the cold-puncher’s box of #7 Laughingsaintssong, #3 Jockamo’s Song. Race 9 there, and #6 Fort Pulaski and #7 Southern Argument emerge as live-longshot-type plays.

Crazy turf-sprint stakes race in Keystone 9: #8 Amelia’s Wild Ride, #1 Pool Winner, #4 Mongolian Saturday.

Extra for Experts: Prairie 9 has #7 Code West and #5 American Dubai in with chances.
